Dr. Amr Raheem is a consultant in Andrology Associate Professor at Cairo University Kasr El Eini Teaching Hospital and an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University College London Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. He has a wealth of experience, spanning more than 18 years, in this highly-specialised field. His expertise covers surgical, medical, hormonal, psychological and academic aspects of male health.
He is one of the leading experts in infertility & contraception, Peyronies Disease, Erectile Dysfunction and male Hypogonadism. He performs a large number of highly specialised procedures including microsurgical sperm retrieval, microsurgical reconstruction for obstructive azoospermia, vasectomy reversal, microsurgical vaso-vasostomy, microsurgical epididymo-vasostomy, microsurgical varicocelectomy, inflatable penile prosthesis, penile grafting and plication procedures and microsurgical denervation of the spermatic cord for chronic scrotal pain.
Mr. Raheem was the associate chief investigator for all UK Xiapex (Xiaflex) clinical trials. Xiapex is the first non-surgical treatment to be licensed for the treatment of Peyronie’s disease. Mr. Raheem’s experience with this new treatment option allows him to personally tailor the treatment approach for each patient according to the presenting condition, just like surgical correction. Mr. Raheem has performed over six hundred procedures with this technique, more than any other doctor in Europe. In addition to leading the development of this treatment, he also trains doctors from the UK and Europe in how to perform this procedure.
Furthermore, he is part of a team that is exploring the therapeutic effects of Botox (botulinum toxin) on erectile dysfunction and has very recently presented the results of a pioneering pilot study in this exciting field at the International Society for Sexual Medicine (ISSM) congress in Beijing May ’16 and at the American Sexual Medicine Society (SMSNA) congress in Scottsdale, Arizona Nov ’16. This is a newly proposed medical solution that may completely change how men with erectile dysfunction are treated.
He is actively involved in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate doctors, as well as training junior doctors and nursing staff. He also trains urologists in clinical and surgical Andrology and gynaecologists, sub-specialising in reproductive medicine, in male infertility. He has delivered numerous lectures in the field of Andrology to undergraduate medical students, Urology Diploma students, MSc Urology students, the Institute of Cancer Research, MSc Oncology students, MSc Genetics and Prenatal Diagnosis students, and General Practitioners. He has also been invited to lecture in several international medical congresses and has supervised several clinical theses.
